    Arran 1997 'Rowan Tree', 46%, OB 2010, Icon's of Arran, 6000 bottles
    I have the impression that I have more grains here than at the Peacock. However, the sweet distilling character is equally present. Vanilla, honey and then sweet fruit. In the latter I think of plums, raisins and cherries, but then sugared cherries. Cherries in syrup. Kriekenjeever. And pink grapefruit (I also had in the Peacock). Something floral also comes around the corner. Yes, hay, dried flowers and potpourri, together with the honey, that will dominate. Whatever I have here as well as in the Peacock is candied ginger. Will that be a landmark? Very pleasant nose in any case. The taste is soft, light and stimulating. Now I have more herbs (especially ginger, like some pepper and cloves) and nuts, in addition to the sweet granularity. And the pink grapefruit, that too is a recurring association. Medium, warming and spicy aftertaste. Tasty whisky, clearly more sherry influence than the Peacock, but not better. Not even worse, the same score. 83/100 http://onversneden.com/2011/01/31/arran-1997-%E2%80%98rowan-tree%E2%80%99/
